If the ready messages in pending messages is never empty, event messages 
are not processed.  (By ready, I mean time-stamped for before or at now.)

This can happen at (perhaps abnormal) heavy processing loads.

It also makes it harder to write efficient background tasks.

I don't think newbies need worry about these.  I mention that because of 
the original question.
